Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane became all defensive when reporters questioned him about the absence of striker Jose Ali Meza from the starting line-up in recent weeks.

Reports suggest that Venezuelan forward Meza is growing frustrated with his lack of game-time for Masandawana this season.

The 27-year-old signed for the defending PSL champions last June and initially looked a decent buy however his opportunities have been limited this campaign.

Meza is part of a star-studded squad at the Brazilians and is finding hard to break into the side along with Jeremy Brockie, Aubrey Ngoma and others.

Mosimane refused to be drawn into speculation regarding the future of the player and instead had a go at journalists who asked about the Venezuelan's future at the club.

The Sundowns mentor said as quoted by the Kickoff publication: "Meza? Brockie. What about Brockie? Why Meza? What about Brockie? What about Aubrey Ngoma? I mean why you go to Meza, is he your buddy?

"I am giving you names, ask about more, Meza? I mean guys, should I take [Lebohang] Maboe out for Meza to play? Ask about others, be intelligent, you don't want to ask about Brockie?

"Ask about Aubrey Ngoma, go on. Yeah! I mean really, at Sundowns you've got to play hey, you've got to earn your stripes.

"Maboe, are you happy with him? Seven goals? He's okay? Who scores seven goals? Seven at this time, he’s okay? The boy from Maritzburg? I mean really, give him the credit."
